This milestone was made possible thanks to the integration of excellence in knowledge and the innovative and improvement capacity of biomedical research groups, integrated into the lines of research and belonging to the entities constituents of the Institute.
The Foundation was originally the managing body of the Parc Taulí Research and Innovation Institute (I3PT), which provided the necessary structure to carry out the purpose of the institute from its inception in 2015.
